LOCK UP AND HIT THE ROAD

The Courier-Mail - Home - - RETIREMENT LIVING - EMILY BLACK

South­east Queens­land over-50s can con­tinue to tick off their bucket lists as In­ge­nia Life­style Betha­nia un­veils new home de­sign con­cepts to suit ”lock up and leave’’ res­i­dents.

In­ge­nia Life­style re­gional sales man­ager Sharon Man­son said the new con­cepts were de­signed to meet the grow­ing de­mand from lo­cal down­siz­ers.

“In­ge­nia Life­style’s new home de­sign con­cepts are part of the in­no­va­tive land lease own­er­ship model and will pro­vide Queens­lan­ders a fresh taste for ad­ven­ture, with homes equipped to fit a car­a­van or recre­ational ve­hi­cle,” Ms Man­son said.

She said the com­mu­nity had be­come a pop­u­lar op­tion for down­siz­ers look­ing to boost their fi­nan­cial health through its in­no­va­tive land lease own­er­ship model.

“In­ge­nia Life­style’s land lease model al­lows buy­ers to pur­chase a new, ar­chi­tec­turally-de­signed home and lease – rather than own – the land,” Ms Man­son said.

“This unique model is the per­fect way for down­siz­ers to fund a brand new life­style, elim­i­nat­ing the need to pay stamp duty, exit fees or de­ferred man­age­ment fees, plus res­i­dents are able to keep 100 per cent of the cap­i­tal gains if or when they choose to sell their home.”

Ms Man­son said res­i­dents ap­pre­ci­ated be­ing able to house RVs and car­a­vans nearby as the vil­lage sup­ports the “lock up and leave’’ life­style.

“In­ge­nia Life­style Betha­nia res­i­dents love the free­dom that comes with leav­ing their homes be­hind for a few weeks as they travel around in their RVs or car­a­vans,” she said.

Lo­cal res­i­dents and grey no­mads Lee and Norma Fal­coner love be­ing part of their In­ge­nia Life­style Betha­nia com­mu­nity – when they’re not busy trav­el­ling around Aus­tralia.

“This year we have been away for fourand-a-half months trav­el­ling – mainly in our car­a­van,” Mr Fal­coner said.

“Liv­ing in the vil­lage makes it easy to pack up and go.”

In­ge­nia Life­style Betha­nia is al­low­ing over-50s with a sense of ad­ven­ture to find a new home de­sign in an in­no­va­tive land lease own­er­ship model that al­lows res­i­dents to lock up and leave the vil­lage and travel where the road takes them.
